    The Tarrasque is also pretty iconic of D&D, I think.

    As for intelligent races that are notable in D&D, I'd like to add Yuan-Ti and Elan to the list.
    Displacer beast are one of my favourite D&D original monsters, thri-kriin are also quite cool.

    AFAIK the Tarrasque is a french myth or something like that.

    Edit: Yep according to wikipedia, the Tarrasque is based on the French myth of the Tarasque
